Snork. It looks like they're wearing Ronald McDonald wigs.

I like the attention to detail - the hats, the swaggering and the burly chap at the end who falls at the first hurdle. It made me laugh more than seems proper. I think it’s because it’s so horribly plausible. You just know that if someone were to build one and leave it unsupervised, it would, fairly quickly, be used in that way.

Hmmm. I can hear an XTC song somewhere in this post title...

David

See, I had to google the XTC reference. I was actually thinking of Howard the Duck and his grumbling about being stuck on a planet populated by “hairless apes.”

They seem to be lying in those piles far longer than seems proper.

Good way to deal with zombies.

Yes, their co-ordination seems charmingly impaired. But by my count five plucky heroes do make it past the giant whirling bar of doom.

Over here in the US, where red and blue dominate our meaningless, hopelessly politicized national dialog, as preposterous as it is, this piece is especially poignant. We rush in to be scythed down by Machine, where we frantically wiggle around in heaps as it were.

You Brits would need red and blue notably present in your system to feel this pain as acutely. You know, in the flag or something.

Beer? Your average LIV needs no beer to achieve this level of competence.

Oddly enough, I found it while eating a cheese toastie in a café in the park. Does that count?

I watched it while listening to Pink Floyd's "Time". Mind blown. Imagine all the evil applications for this device.
